Flower Pot Card for Come and Get It


Hi Everyone, Shell is the hostess at Come and Get It this week, and she has a really simple challenge for us this week. We are to have flowers and butterflies on our cards. I decided I would make a Flower Pot Card this time around, it's been a while since I've done one of them.  I have used Cajun Craze for the flower pot and the base of the inside card. For the flowers I've punched some of the fancy flowers out of Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight, I also made the other petals using my sizzix and cutting them using the fun flowers die. I used the centers from that die as well and then I used a couple of buttons and a brad to finish of the flowers. The little card is naturals white and the saying is from curvy verses and then I used the beautiful wings embosslit to make the butterflies out of poppy parade as well and added them on. The leaves were made with the blossom builder punch. I ran the Cajun Craze base through with the square lattice folder just to the base part, and i punched the top with the scalloped border punch and then added the ribbon with the 5/8's daffodil delight ribbon that I've got in my stash.
Thanks for looking. I will also enter this card into the following challenges.
